Petition to Mr Andrew Tyrie MP, Chichester District Council, Pro-Force Recruitment & West Sussex County Council

Say NO! To housing hundreds of workers in disused South Downs - picturesque East Wittering

Putting hundreds of any kind of large groups of people, (it just happens to be eastern European agricultural workers this time mostly male) into a rural village (Bracklesham Bay) is a ludicrous decision. This is NOT a racist petition and will not support any racist comments on here. Mark Marriott from Pro-Force who is responsible for these workers claims this is “large scale scaremongering through untruths and borderline racism”. This is just a cheap shot to play the race card as these workers are not from the UK. There would have been the same issues had they been a large scale group of young males from the UK. The facts are they are already creating an intimidating atmosphere in the village by forming large groups sitting around on verges smoking and being thrown out of local pubs. There is simply nothing for this amount of young males to do in this village. What this petition is about is having a VOICE. If this had been a planning application we would have been notified and been able to have our say, it is simply that this village can't cope especially in the summer months when it is gridlocked sometime seeing 8 mile tailbacks to West Wittering Beach. Also our community doesn't have the infrastructure as well as services (Doctors/Dentists) to deal with this not to mention the impact on people living nearby. What has annoyed local residents the most though is the way it has been handled by Seawood Properties, Pro--force recruitment and Cre8 property services and they should be held accountable for this issue. A similar idea was stopped in 2015 when the Earnley Concourse was muted to house a similar amount and that petition reached over 2000 signatures. This idea needs to be defended by all local residents.

Petition to The Planning Inspectorate, Harborough District Council, Houghton on the Hill Parish Council


Since early 2016, William Davis Ltd have made three planning applications to build houses on land off Winckley Close/North Way.  Nearly 300 local residents objected to the first two of these applications with not a single comment in support.  Our elected councillors on Harborough District Council's Planning Committee refused permission for each of the first two applications.  William Davis Ltd appealed unsuccessfully against rejection of the first application, then appealed against the second rejection and have, as of today (24 March 2017), lodged a new third application. Houghton on the Hill’s emerging Neighbourhood Plan is at an advanced stage and states an overwhelming preference for development on the north side of the village where planning permission for 87 new houses has already been granted.  The developers are fully aware of this but continue their aggressive drive to develop elsewhere before the Neighbourhood Plan can be enacted.  Building on the Winckley Close site is contrary to residents’ stated wishes andthe well-considered objectives of the emerging Neighbourhood Plan.  It is also in opposition to the majority decisions taken by our elected Councillors. Interested parties only have until 6 April 2017 to register comments on the second appeal and the new application on the Harborough District Council’s website - both links are below. However you may find this petition to be an easier and quicker way to express local opinion. Please register your opposition to the current William Davis Ltd appeal and the new application by signing this petition.  The petition will be delivered to the Planning Inspectorate and Harborough District Council on 6 April 2017 and therefore we request your support by no later than 6 April 2017.  The petition will continue to remain open after this date.  A written petition is also available in Houghton Post Office.  Please make your voice heard.
